Very nice architecture. Many of the photos looks like the known fairytail "thousand and a night"

F it...

Qasr Mshatta (Arabic: قصر المشتى‎, "Winter Palace") is the ruin of an Umayyad winter palace probably commissioned by caliph Al-Walid II (743-744).

The facade was dismantled and shipped off to Germany, it was a gift from the Ottoman Sultan to the Kaiser. (smh)

Great thread.
Awesome architecture overall, but it is interesting seeing some of the mixed styles, such as the Sicilian mixture of Christian and Islamic elements or the the persistence of the Roman style in Damascus.

Though each page is a bit hard on the browser. Maybe simply have less pictures per post with more posts?
